The Technological Singularity

I just watched a video about the new M1 chips from Apple and…

…my my my.

You have probably heard of “The Singularity” and figure it’s 1) Some kind of science fiction gag. 2) A conspiracy theory. 3) More nonsense from nerds. 4) Media hype. 5) Political theater. 6) All of the above.

Well, forget what YOU think. “The Singularity” is not going to happen in ten or twenty years. That’s a cover story. IT IS HAPPENING NOW. There will be good and bad things come of this, but, for now, you, me, and all us chullin are gonna hafta get righteous with Jesus because the machines from The Matrix are already on the way.

Good Things That Will Come from This

AI will take over a lot of jobs currently done by lazy, incompetent, stupid humans. When AI takes over, y’alls pizza order will be correct, on time and under budget. You will be able to talk to somebody on the phone about your silly little problems at all hours of the day or night and they WILL be able to help you. Everyday tasks, like providing you with a rental car, that seemed impossible when the world was run by naked apes, will become shockingly simple and easy.

And the car will drive itself so your drunk ass don’t have to.

Bad Things That Will Come from This

So what could go wrong? Well, a lot of it depends on the relationship between AI and money. As long as corporations were just “theoretical” persons then we could still depend on the fickle finger of stupid to keep anybody from doing anything extreme.

Mostly.

But once AI has access to funds then all bets are off. You and me will become pawns in day ebil game.

So we have that to look forward to.

The next few years, right now, will be the most significant event in human history. It’s happening. But the media has decided to “downplay” the whole thing and pretend that it’s always “a few years away.”

No it isn’t. It’s now. Hold on to your butts.

  1. I don’t know much about The Singularity, but machine learning has come a hell of a long way. Take a site like this: https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/

    AI-generated naked ape faces, courtesy of some hobbyist. Imagine what a nation state is capable of doing but isn’t telling us.

    I haven’t watched the new Apple M1 presentation, I’m not much of an Apple guy. Maybe I should.

    1. Would you like to swing on a star? Carry moonbeams home in a jar? And be better off than you are?

      OR WOULD YOU RATHER BE TORTURED ETERNALLY BY EVIL MACHINES???

      Just askin’…
